With the valuable support of our Gold anniversary sponsors Allenby Capital Ltd, Mazars LLP, the London Stock Exchange and Winterflood Securities Ltd, we have been celebrating 25 years of championing the interests of small and mid-size quoted companies in a number of different ways this month.
On Thursday 1 June 2017, we opened the market at the London Stock Exchange.
Tim Ward, CEO of the QCA said, "It is an honour to open the market at the London Stock Exchange. It is a great way to mark our first 25 years and reflect on our successes for our members. We campaign on many fronts with the LSE to help optimise the opportunities for small and mid-size quoted companies to raise finance, to grow, to create jobs and to build wealth for investors and the wider community. We look forward to working with the LSE over the next 25 years to ensure that the markets are fit for purpose, providing the fuel for the UK's vital growth companies."
On Thursday 7 June 2017, we continued the celebrations at our Investor Forum at the Mansion House, which brought investors and business journalists together to explore how to improve investment in small and mid-size quoted companies by attracting more investment and having an effective and valued dialogue with the media.

This was followed by our anniversary reception – also at Mansion House – with a keynote speech by the Lord Mayor of London and attended by company directors, regulators, investors and government officials.
